TAB Control - Page 1 controls visible on page 2

I'm working in Access 2007. When page 2 of a tab control gets the focus, the
controls on page 1 are also displayed. Same thing happens on page 3 - Page 1
and 2 controls display. Makes a real mess. This started happening during a
time when no changes were made to the DB (at least not by me). Thanks in
advance for the help.

It sounds like the controls are actually on the form itself, "in front of" the
tab page. Try opening the form in design view. Crtl-click each control which
needs to be on page 1; type Ctrl-X to cut them to the clipboard; select page 1
of the tab control by clicking on the tab, not on the surface of the page -
the entire page should darken to indicate that it's been selected. Then type
Ctrl-V to paste. They'll probably paste in the upper left corner and will need
to be moved; they should all be still selected so you should be able to move
them as a group.
